From an abstract of the forthcoming re
jmrt of the Secretary of the Treaaur, says
the lloM.au Commercial Bulletin, it apira
that Hie nationnl revenue, (for the first time
aince the teginntnj: of our civil war) for the
financial vear ending June 30, 180U, ex
oeedHl the cxpentlittirea by $37,C1,857 36.
DtirinR that vear, atao.the receipts from In
ternal Revenue, increased by $100,000,000
and from Ciiatonw, $90.000,000, a compared
with the preceding. The cash balance in
the Treasury, at tlie end of the year, was
130,069,815, again $S5S,309 on the 30th
of June, 1865. . .
Only fix month? previous to this footing
up, viz.: Bocemlier 351, 1SC5, instead of .i sur
plus, there existed n deficiency of wme
SC19,000,000; but during that year the ex
penses of the War Lteparimomwcre reuueeu
aoine $750,000,000, and of the lavy Depart
ment. SSO.000.000. For tlie Iat quarter,
the disbunsemenU of the former department
dwindled down to S13.000.000, against
$105,000,000 fur the first quarter.
Tims, with the Government expenses
rapidly reduced a result for which the
lii"licw't credit must be awarded to an honest
and economical administration and the
revenue largely augmented, the nation is
evidently fast annroachintr a satisfactory
solution of its great financial problem, lu
.... ,,p.. ..--1 i ' m
the public debt cu m.nate.1, have been wn-
j sou, wnen
siderublv ahead of current expenses, each
month leaving an increased balance tobeap
nlied to the mviuent of that debt. Since
that date, some" fourteen months, its redtio
lion has amounted, in round numbers, to
$184,000,000, leaving, a net balance, on the
lit of October, 18UU, or $,do,oju,yii oo.
Dunne the last two months this reduction
tins gone on at a very rapid pace, ucmg .,
. t o
410.10S for the month of August, and 922,
31G.22C for the month of September. S5'J,-
802.324 for the two months, or at the rate of
one million a day. At thisratc the national
debt would be cancelled in seven years, both
princiiKtl and interest. There is now more
than gold enough in the Federal Treasury,
(S87.000.0001 to ikiv this interest, as it stands,
a year ahead, and as the debt becomes ab
sorbod. a Iartre mrt of this gold revenue,
which now noiim in at the rate of 5200.000,-
000 per annum, can be applied to tlie li
quidation of the principal.
If these osttmatcs be correct, the war debt
may be said to be in a safe and speedy course
of extinction, provided we can maintain
domestic peace and a condition of things to
permit the industry of the country to get
upon prosperous legs again. But in the
London money market, our bonds bearing
six per cent, gold interest arc quoted at from
sixty-eight to seventy, while three per cent.
British consols are held as high as ninety.
Whvisthis? Whv are the securities of
a people who have shown their perfect capa
city to handle the immense debt we now
have upon us, rated at so great a percentage
below those of a country whose political
power and material supremacy, to all hu
man calculations, have readied their high
est point? The answer is to belouiid in the
political agitation, to which the leaders of
the ltcdicnl party are subjecting this nation.
If Congress, a year ago, had adopted the
President's restoration policy, the national
credit would have ere this been completely
re-established. It will languish as long as
our domestic quiet is held upon the tenter
honks of suspense.
This week is lo loll for this country an
important tale. If the Northern Stales that
are to hold elections, including among them
the great State of New York, should give
increased Itadical majorities, it would indi
cate that the evil dav was close at hand. It
would embolden the ultra leaders to attempt
the revolutionary programme not perhaps
to the cow) fetal which contemplates the
deposition of the President under the
mockery of impeachment, but at any rate, to
keeping in play the enginery of exclusion of
the Southern States from the Union, and the
imposition of all the unjust and degrading
measures which the malevolence of the
Radical leaders in Congress may suggest.
The October elections, though generally
favorable to Kadical candidates, showed
that there was an immense parly in favor of
the Government and Conservative princi
ples; and, though the Radicals boast largely
f the continued power which it gives them
in Congress, has had the cllect to cause the
more discreet ami ruling men of that
party to consider the cost of a revolu
tion, and apply a curb to the infuriate
fecline which roekless trifiers with the.
country's peace had contrived to incite
There is reason to- hope that the November
returns will still further sober them. It is
difficult to calculate, however, upon the ac
tion of a people, the majority of whom seem
to have so completely passed under the con
trol of the selfish demagogues who have
"got the start" in that portion of the nation.
Should Conservatism; hold its own, Or gain
uiion the present Radical strength in New
ork, New Jersey, and other States, we
shall regard the result as a stay upon the
schemes of Wade, Huti.kk and their daring
associates, and be encouraged to liopo that
a sober second thought will come to the re
lief of the nation before its condition be
come!) irremediable.
At one o'clock yesterday afternoon there
had been no violence in Baltimore. The
revolutionists were still in consultation as
to whether they wotild resist the lawful au
thority of the Slate. The new Commission
er were proceeding deliberately and quietly,
but firmly. It was understood tiat thoy
were performing their duties by organising
the police forces of the city, and when that
is completed, their orders will be given
them, and they will go upon duty. Any
others protendin- to act as policemen will
be in violation of law, and will of course be
arreted. At this point, if at any, will lie
the crisis of the all.iir, and if the new police
shall be railed, there will almost necessa
rily be bloodshed. To what extent it will go, j act otherwise to quietly and peaceably ac
it is impossible to foretell. If it should quiesce in the measures now about being in-
threaten serious or extended dimensions, it
is understood that Gen. Grant will promp
ly proclaim martial law, ami take the city
into military poeion, until it appears
that the Itwai authorities are in a iosilion
to maintain the peace. We do not, there- I

The capitalists of this county, like others
throughout the South, arc turning their at
tention to manufacturing at home our own

then returned to us at the most fabulous
prices. Several planters of the neichbor-

Lionel JOHN . I'EitKixs, ot I'erkinsville,
( formerly Buckhorn,) in this county, is now
actively engaged in building the' "Perkins-
ville Cotton factory," which will be a mill
of seven hundred and fifty spindles work
ing some fifty hands. The buildings are all
up, and amply sufficient for three times the
amount of machinery already procured, and
tnrec times tlie present number of hands.
The location is one of the finest in the State,
on the Macon and Louisville road, twelve
and a half miles from Louisville, and nine
teen miles from Macon ; at the latter place
it is placed within easy access ot Mobile and
Memphis, by the Mobile and Ohio railroad.
The mill is propelled by water power; the
saw and grist mill and the wool card are
already in full blast. Col. PEr.KiNS has se
cured. the services of an exnerieneed cotton
factory man from Georgia, who will be the
general superintendent of the establishment,
which is designed to be very extensive. Col.
Pkmcins is very desirous of procuring a
partner with 30,000 or $40,000 cash capital.
It is a fine opening for a good investment.

1 very lame meetinc of Republicans was
held to-night at the Front street Theatre.
General J. R. Kenly snnd ex-Secretary
Haklan were among the speakers. The
mass meeting at the theatre to-night adopted
the following declaration addressed to the
country in regard to existing troubles:
1 he loyal citizens of Haltimore, assembled
at an extraordinary juncture in affairs of the
city, think it due to themselves and their
lellow-citizens of other States to give a calm
and deliberate expression of their views and
purposes in reference to those occurrences
which are now agitating the minds of our
First. We are law-abiding people, and it
is our purpose and desire to maintain the
law, and not to resist it.
Second. c propose to maintain and
defend our rights under the law and in a
lawful manner.
Third. We hold that in case of any
doubts in the construction of law, those
doubts are to be determined only by the
constitutional interpreters of law, viz : The
courts which are created for that purpose.
fourth. We demand, as a right, that this
itiestioi) in controversy between the Governor
of the State and the Police Commissioners,
a question in which, as citizens, we have a
deep interest, shall be submitted to the de
cision of the courts, aud it it is submitted
we believe there will be none.
Fifth. We desire, also, to express our
strong confidence in the integrity and fideli
ty of Messrs. IIikis and Wood, who, with
the .Mayor, constitute tiio present rolice
Hoard; and we appeal to the fact of the quiet
and order now prevailing in our city, under
circumstances so provocative of excitement,
as evidence of the elhcacy of their admini
stration, and we pledge to them our undi
vided support in the lawful discharge of
their office until displaced by the decision
of a competent judicial tribunal.
And, finally, while we deprecate undue
excitement, and in this crisis desire to speak
and-act dispassionately as well as firmly, we
cannot refrain from expressing our indigna
tion at the action of Gov. Swann in his at
tempted removal of the Police Commis
sioners. We believe that act to be a viola
tion of the Constitution and laws of the State,
and an assumption of authority which he
has no legal right to exercise ; and we de
clare to tlie people of the United States,
what is abundantly shown by the manner
of conducting the investigation, by the fact
that the judge, as a known candidate for the
office of United States Senator, was himself
virtually a party to the case, by the lan
guage of his decision and by the political
character of those whom, he has appointed
to succeed the present Commissioners, that
the object sought was not justice, but to pro
mote political and personal ends by the
transfer of the power of the State by a fac
tion composed chiefly of those who were
sympathizers and abettors of the late rebel
EKS. Baltimore, Nov. 2. The following pro
clamation has just been issued by the newly
appointed Commissioner?. The old Board,
regarding it as an attempt to seduce their
force from their control, are also about issu
ing a proclamation:
Board op Police, Baltimore, Md., No v.
2. Having been appointed Police Commis
sioners by His Excellency, Gov. Swann,
rife Messrs. Sam IIixde and N. L. Wood,
removed, we desire to state that in the pro
secution of the duties assigned we do not
desire interfering in any respect with the
police now organized, or to remove any per
son connected with it for his political opin
ions, provided he does not hereafter render
himself amenable to the laws now in force
for the government of the police of Balti
more. Wo believe the officers and men in
the department arc disposed to be what the
law requires them to be, conservators of the
pence, and it is hoped and expected that
they will cheerfully aid us in preserving the
peace of the city. We also invite all good
citizens to assist us by their counsel and their
example, that they will use their best en
deavors to prevent any undue excitement.
and that they will also advise all disposed to
auguraicu uy me auiiioniy oi me uovcrnor.

would ak, that the Fitas and Time calls
him a Radical? If we are not most egregi

Conservative bafore the election, which
resulted in his defeat. One thing is sure; if
Mr. Chitwood had declared himself a

From the Lebanon Iferald, of yesterday,
we extract :
Cumberland axd Stones River Torn
tike. We understand that W.IL Goodwin
and John Perkins, Esq. of Lebanon have
been appointed Commissioners and Directors
of the Cumberland and Stones River Turn-
piKe, leading trom Alurfreesborough to
Hunters Point, on the Cumberland river,
and are about to put the same in complete
repair, that the State may receive, at least,
the interest on the large amount of money
which it has invested. The State has inves
ted already in this turnpike nearly forty
thousand dollars, and interest since 1852,
and has received back but a small moity of
that amount. It is the intertion of the
Commissioners to strictly enforce the laws
provided against the evasion of tolls, and to
make this one of the most popular turnpikes
in the State.

for some weeks past a gratifying increase in.

The Shelby ville Union, of yesterday says :
On last Saturday an election was held for
Municipal officers for the ensuing year.
John W. Thompson was elected Mayor
Robert II. Lewis, Recorder, and Henry
Yancey, Constable. There was no election
held in several of the wards. The election
was a very close one and we have heard it
intimated that there will be a coutest in re
gard to some of the offices.
A jNoble Object. We learn that several
of our citizens intend making an effort to
raise the sum of one thousand dollars or
more in this county, for the purpose of bury
ing in one grave the dead bodies of soldiers
of the Confederate army, that are buried
promiscuously over this county. We deem
this a very commendable action, and wish it
every success. No ri"ht thinkincr man could
object to giving proper sepulture to the dead,
no matter what may have been his antece
dents. Many of the dead were strancrers to
our State, and occupy an unknown and un
recognized grave. To assist in this charita
ble object it is proposed to hold a series of
tableaux and concerts, the proceeds of which
will be applied to this object.

Toronto, C. W., .Nov. 1. At the Assizes
to-day, the Grand Jury presented true bills
against threo Fenians John Logan, Thos.
II. Maxwell, and Michael Partell.
All pleaded "not guilty," and would be
ready for trial by the middle of the month.
Additional counts have been put into in
dictments charging British born subjects,
and those who claim to be American citi
zens, as both British subjects and American
citizens, so they may elect to be tried on
either count.
It is evident that the prisoners' counsel
has resorted to a ruse in order that their
trials may be put oil' till Assizes. He has
lithograph forms of an affidavit applving
for postponement, in nearly every case, on
the ground that witnesses may be procured
from the United States. The object evidently
is to gain time, so that the excitement in
the United States may have the efiect of in
ducing the Washington Government to ask
for their pardon.
Itie 1' email threats are turning the whole
commuuity, and many heretofore in favor of
leniency now go for hanging Lynch and
McMahon, to let the" Fenians know they
are not afraid. It would be much, better if
the Fenians would leave the case in the
hands of the United States Government.
I have it from officials hich in the confi
dence of the Executive, that there will be
no hanging of Fenians. Butsosurcas fate,
f the Fenians again cross the border, these
poor men will be hanged as an example.
Residents on Uic rii&gara frontier arc in a
great state of excitement, fearing another

point to inspire coufidedce in the residents.
Measures have already been taken to dis
patch a strong force there at a moment's no
tice. Two splendid batteries of Armstroso
guns, and the Thirteenth Hussars, with a
regiment of regulars and a couple of regi
ments of volunteers, can be sent there from
here in six hours. The Hussars arc the
same that joined in the charge of the Light
Brigade at Sebastapol. All are armed with
breach-loaders and cavalry revolvers. They
are a desperate looking set of fellows, and,
mounted on English blood horses. They
number about five hundred.
Three Toronto Fenians, who remained in
Cornaway, arrived in Toronto, and will be
tried. Two are to be proceeded against to

POOR OF TIIK sorrtt.
There is a very prevalent idea that in cot
ton manufacturing wc would be destitute in
the important element of labor. A little re
flection will show that, as a general thing,
every farm house has the old fashioned spin
ning wheel and hand loom. Here is the
basis of all manufacturing; and when these
girls and small boys are placed in cotton
mills, their occupation is net changed, but
simply amplified, and in a short time thy
become tho most skillful and expert opera
tives. This fact has been most thoroughly ex
emplified in Granitevillc, South Carolina,
Roswell, Georgia, and Alisonia, Tennessee,
where the labor was obtained from their Im
mediate localities, and where, prior to their
erection, no cotton mills existed.
The result of each case, tried in three dif
ferent States, and some two hundred miles
distant from each other, was that the pro
ducts of these mills met in successful com
petition in the Southern markets, as well as
those of Philadelphia and New York, simi
lar products from the mills of Now England
and Great Britain.
Here let us state a fact, of which we have
jUst cause to be proud that prior to the war
cotton yarns were sold by the Georgia mills
in Philadelphia at a Jew' price than New
England mills could aCbrd, and yet paid a
very handsome profit. Moreover, there
never was a shipment of cither yams or
sheetings made to either St. Louis, Philadel
phia.or New York, by any of the Southern
cotton tnills, that did not command a higher
j price than tlie same grade of product mad
m any other part of the world.
Let it be remembered, too, that- these tests
were made when raw cotton commanded
from eight to ten cents per pound, and of
course could not stand the cost of itranspor
tatiou that it can to-day, wheit cotton
worth thirty-two cents per pound. How
would it gliv'den the hearts of many of the
poor of our country if they only could have
the opportunity to work in this way for their
living, lliev nave proven themselves fully
and entirely competent to do as satisfactory
manufacturing as any class in tlie world.
l'rom the National Intelligencer.!
As the Kadicals are so madly pressing

Wc annex a little Nummary of the white
and black population in several of the
Southern States, which will throw some
light on our subject.
One fact is worthy of observation that
the white and black population is not
equally distributed throughout any of the
Southern States. The white lopulatiou
predominates in the high and temperate
regions, and the blacks in the low lands.
Hence, in every one of the Southern States
tho black population is more or less local
ized, which would give it a local control, if
it became a distinct political 'clement. If
parties were organized on the basis of antago
nism to the present white race, the tendency
would be for a segregation of the two races
in each States. The blacks would tend to
the low lands and the whites to the high
lands. In this way the low lands might in
time come to be abandoned entirely to tho
blacks. Should this separation of the races
take place, what would become of the black
The questions arising out of the difference
of races South are of immense magnitude.
Wc should advance to their solution not as
the Radicals desire, per saltum, but feeling
our way with prudence, as is the spirit of
President Johnson's policy.

770. Fifty-two counties, in twenty of which
the blacks are in the majority.
The following are the views of the Cin
cinnati Commercial, a leading Radical organ,
on the subjeet of our foreign policy.
, Tho theory whioh eccms to ho ooooptod
by the authorities at Washington, that a
disturbance with some foreign power will
modify domestic difficulties, is a dangerous
mistake. One of the reasons early assigned
by the President for a precipitate restoration
of the rebel States to their full political
relations in the Union was, that such resto
ration would enable us to adopt a vigorous
foreign policy. It was an unsound reason.
We want not only peace at home but abroad.
We do not require any foreign policy other
than arises from a strict attention to our own
business. No foreign nation is likely to
trouble us. It can not be alleged that any
one is trying to force a war upon us; and if
we pick a quarrel with any foreign power,
the consequences will be evil if not dis
astrous. As to our relations with England, it scem3
probable that a prudent and firm course on
our part will lead to the settlement of the
Alabama claims, because England cannot
well afford to permit a precedent to stand
that in case of any war which she might en
gage in would be fatal to her commerce. By
the payment of the Alabama claims, she
can put aside the Alabama precedent, and
it is to her interest to do so. Her own
leading journals are so sensible of this that
they have revived I he agitation of the matter.
It becomes our government to put in a word
for clemency toward the Fenians who have
been sentenced to death, and it would be
unfortunate if that sentence were carried
into execution. But wc fear Mr. Seward's
letter will not secure the ostensible object of.
that document. It seems better calcula
ted to irritate than conciliate to provoke
controversy than to serrc the ends of hu
manity. The Mexican intervention has an especi
cially ugly look. It is the extent of folly
for us to meddle in the afiYirs of that un
happy country, as the French retire from
their costly and unlucky experiment. We
are not likely to benefit Juarez by active
intervention in his behalf. If troops are
sent into Mexico to help him, there will be a
powerful party against them, and we will
speedily be in a position as difficult as that
from which the Irenchareexfricating them
selves. The whole of Mexico would not
compensateus for the expense andturmoilof
such a situation for one year. The country
is worthless to ns, and wc haveno legitimate
business in it. The best we can do is to
keep our hands out of the fire. The Mexi
can factions should be allowed perfect free
dom to cure each others distempers by
blood-letting. That is according to their
character. We have enough to do at home
to see that we are not Mexicanized.
Tlue Berlin correspondent of the London
TTm states that another European war is
imminent. He says:
"It is generally recognized that the pres
ent peace is merely an armed truce which
may continue for a year, perhaps for two,
but certainly not beyond, and which will be
succeeded by a struggle to which the war
with Austria was hardly more than child's
play. Whenever it happens, we may be
pretty sure that Prussia will be well pre
pared for it; far from reducing her military
establishment, she is enlarging and com
pleting it; her arsenals arc filled to over
flowing with implements of destruction; her
gun factories are in full blast; strange ru
mors are current of new and undreamed of
improvements in the artillery department;
and if hostilities should break out, she may
astonish her enemies with a second edition
of the needle gun, more fatal and more de
cisive of victory than the first. On the other

The trial of the Baltimore Police Com

prosecution closing the case. No rebutting

defence, who were given until this morning
to procure witnesses, lhe case is said to be
virtually decided, and the Commissioners

Some of the testimony against the Com
missioners is a beautiful commentary on the
way the party of great moral ideas is in the
iiabit ot doing things when it has a stilish
purpose to accomplish. For instance, it was
shown that one of the election "judges" in
the second precinct ' was once arrested for
murder;" another "inspector" had been
indicted for shooting a man : another was
"siwrting character, who had been in the pen-
itentiary ;" another, " the keeper of a sailors'
boarding-house, who had been arrested
for stripping soldiers during the
war," another "was a rough;" another "was

of his wife;" another was held to answer xi
charge of murdering an inoffensive Iribh
woman, in the Marsh Market; another was
a "habitual drunkard;" another, but
enough, and more than enough to show what
a bad lot they all were. If the Radicals
have any rebutting evidence to offer, it seems
to us, they ought to lose no time in hunting
it up. The sworn record against them, as
epitomized above, ought to make them blush

forcible resistance to the removal of the so-

thojgpo richly deserve.
In nn able speech of ex-Governor Sey
mour, of New York, we find the following
suggestive paragraph :
"Not only is the public debt, which pays
nothing to support the Government, held
mainly in one corner of the country, but the
banks, which have a right to make the cur
rency for all the States, are placed and
owned in a large degree by the Eastern and
Middle States. Not only our debt, but our
enrrency is scctionalized. In the report of
the Secretary of theTreasury on the subject,
made last session to Congress, it was shown
of the National Bank notes then issued,
Massachusetts had S52 for every person
within her borders ; Connecticut, $41, and
Rhode Island $77 ; while in the great com
mercial States of the West Ohio, Illinois,
Wisconsin and Michigan the proportion is
in Ohio only $5 per head; in Illinois $0 ;
in Michigan S3, and in Wisconsin $3 per
head of the population. So that whatever
profits are made out of bank circulation, by
far the largt proportion thereof goes 'o
these New England Sta's. The number
and wealth of the people of the great States
thus left with little or no means of getting
currency, except as borrowed from more
favored sections, make this a glaring evil.
The Springfield Republican alludes to the
coutest in the Rochester (,N. Y.) district, be
tween the Republican candidates for Con
gressional honors, Messrs. Hart and Selye,
and says :
It is a pity both contestants could not be
put aside and a man superior to both, and a
representatite, too we mean Fred. Douo
lass, the nearo orator, who resides in Roches
ter elected from the district. That would,
indeed, be something to the credit ot the city
and tho Republicans of New York.
So you see, gentlemen, how the thing is
working. Look at this:
The colored citizens of Ward Three, in
Boston, have nominated Richard S. Brown
(colored) for the Common Council, and ap
pointed a committee to confer with the Re
publican ward committee.
We notice that some of the Weslorn
journals, in discussing the question of pro
tection and other matters in which the New
England States are. supposed to be specially
interested, use language descriptive of the
selfishness, narrowness and overbearing
tyranny of the latter section, that sounds
amazingly like the denunciations of the
"Yankee States" which we were accus
tomed to hear from the South some years
ago. They are working up a sectional fel-
.ing which, however our eyes may be blind
ed to it under present circumstances, un
questionably has in it elements of danger
for the future. It is not only Copperhead
papers which are culpable in this matter,
but Radical Republican journals, such as
the Chicago Tribune, are among the most
blameable. On the other hand, there are
extreme protectionist journals in the East
ern States, such as the New York Tribune,
which denounce the free trade overtures
so widely held in the West in language as
violent a they formerly applied to the pro
slavery doctrines' held in the South ; gml
seem to regard free trade as no less an out
rage upon human nature than slavery i&Sff.
As the antagonism widens and deepens, and
the sectional feeling which is new making
its appearance hi connection with the sub
ject becomes pronounced and intensified be
tween the Western and New England Status,
we shall probably have another struggle,
which will require to be under other control
than that ef heated and bigoted partisans to
end in a pacific solution. AW York 7.

To the Editors of the Union and
American. Is there anything peculiarly
vitiated in the tastes of the citizens of Nash
ville, or the good people of Tennessee, that
requires of the Nashville press the full de
tails of every criminal case, of a certain
class, ivhich occurs in your community ?
Take, for instance, certain parties from Ken
tucky, who recently figured in public print,
with tlie details of a gross outrage, exhibited
to the public, in the style and prominence
of the worst class of papers at tho North,
devoted especially to such subjects, or the
case that occurred a few months since, in the
Criminal Court, of a similar character, and
in connection with which, it was thought
necessary to publish the whole evidence.
Does the public taste demand such a viola
tion of good taste and propriety ? Woulu
the editors and proprietors of the city press,
read before their wives and children, aloud,
the entertainment they have prepared for
others? Is it respectable to publish such
things? If you could hear the severe de
nunciations of the Nashville press, by the
fathers of families and respectable citizens,
who say that they dare not allow a newspa
per to go into their families, until they have
examined it, you would doubt, whether it
was not qmte as judicious, to respect tie feel
ings ot those who leel outraged at such
things, and desire a purer and more inslruc
the kind of reading, than to minister to the
vile tastes and depraved appetites of a class
of the community who represent very little
of its respectability or character. For the
sake of the good name of our city, if you
have any regard for the wives and danghters
of the land, to whom a newspaper is the
only avenue of intelligence, I pray you, use
your influence and example in establishing
a higher tone in the public press, in this re
spect. The columns filled with police re
ports of tbgrtlnings of the degraded and law
less, can btfbettcr occupied and you need
not sometimes to blush, in the perusal of
yonr own sheet, or those of your neighbors.

Fatal Shootino Affray'. The Canton,
Mississippi, Cititm says: The quiet of our
little city was terribly disturbed on last Wed
nesday. A Mr. Thomas Brennan and Mr.
William Smith, better known as " South

having had a difficulty last week, adjourned
the further prosecution of it to this place,
and came armed to settle it in our streets.
Brennan approached Smith and abused

him to his buggy, he would shoot with him,"
and started for his buggy, BrknnAN follow

side opposite to Brennan, and drew out his
double-barreled shot-gun. As soon a3 Bren
nan saw the gun he fired on Smith and
missed him. Smith returned the fire, the
charge passing over Brennan'3 head and
entering the window of Amos Drain's store,
to the great danger of the inmates. In the
meantime, Brennax fired twice before

The Texas Election. We learn from
the New Orleans Fiwyme that the election
for members of Congress so far appears to
have been treated with sovereign contempt
by the voters of Texas. At Galveston many
of the principal citizens were not aware an
election was to come ofT or had to take
place. In two precincts the polls were not
opened. At Houston, one-sixth of the regu
lar vote was polled. At San Antonio, only
one hundred and four out of 1,500 votes
were cart ; and so on elsewhere. The peo
ple do not seem to care tbout sending Re
presentatives to Washington only to have
them snubbed and sent back.
It seems, however, that if the Texans
neglect politics, and even to look after re
presentation in Congress, they are much oc
cupied with projects for the improvement
and extension of railroad communication
and the support of State credit.
The Mechanic Interfbts Light
Breaking. At the last session of our Le
gislature a charter was granted to the "Phoe

with a capital of $00,000, in shares of $100
each. Since then a large iKrtion of the
-stock has been taken, and the company or
ganization is nearly completed. Its busi
ness is to manufacture pig iron, stoves, hollow-ware
and general foundry and maehine
work. It has already acquired the valuable
property known as the College Hill Foun
dry, and also the well-known "Worley Fur
nace," in Dickson county, foriy-wven miles
from Nashville, on the line of the North
western railroad. This latter property lias
four thnusard acres of uel eared timbered
land, white and black oak. The ore banks
are but three humlred yard from the fur
nace the ore being brown hematite, and,
from apearaneerf, inexhaustible.
